About The Owner

Our family fell in love with Telluride in 1999. We've returned every year, renting all over town and in Mountain Village. When we decided to own a home in this very cool town, we limited our search to locations very close to the two centers of activity -- the gondola base and Main Street in Telluride.

(Town of Telluride License #: 13712)

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Southwestern Colorado

We wanted a home with top-quality finishes and a 1-min. walk either to the gondola and Lift #8, or to the shops and restaurants on Main Street. We found just that at 408 Pacific in Telluride. Voila -- welcome to our home in paradise!

What makes this house unique

From our home:

* Walk about 1 min. southeast to the gondola and lift #8 ... or ...

* Stroll about 1 min. to Telluride's famed Main Street for shopping, restaurants, and then on to Town Park ... or ...

* Meander about 1 min. over to the beautiful river trail that flows for miles alongside the San Miguel River ...

You're in the middle of all that beautiful Telluride has to offer. What's not to love?!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've received these comments from a few different families via e-mail in the last few weeks:

“Your house was so well equipped and so easy to live in … It was so thoughtfully put together - we made popcorn, played scrabble, watched movies and cooked dinner for friends (and thanks for having an electric mixer, lots of spices and great pots!) … appreciated the perfect location - it was closer than we expected to everything - the gondola of course, but even to Honga's or Clarke's - everything is walkable from there … The cleanliness of everything. We are clean freaks, and a lot of rental houses can be grubby. Yours was pristine of course. The baths, the sheets, the carpet - all fresh and clean … A great caretaker is a big plus. Amy really cares - there was no task too big or small, and the cleaning person she brought in did a very good job … All in all, it was terrific; we look forward to staying there again … wishing we were still at your beautiful house!”

The Stimson's home was a perfect getaway for four couples. The house was immaculate, spacious, luxurious, and convenient to everything (gondola, restaurants, and town park). We thoroughly enjoyed having a place to hang out while also having the privacy of four full bed rooms for each couple. The only issue that occurred was the homes carbon monoxide detector's batteries ran out. Amy, the caretaker, had a maintenance man out the next day to replace.

We would highly recommend anyone with a group to stay here. We hope to one day return as we couldn't have been happier with our experience.

The Stimsons and their caretaker, Amy, made the rental process seamless. We were delayed in arriving and the caretaker was responsive and flexible. The house was immaculate and had every detail covered. The kitchen, unlike most rentals, was fully stocked with necessary utensils, bowls, pans... you name it. The beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water, everything worked (!), light switches were labeled (!) ... with 4 teenagers the house provided enough separateness and but also a large enough area to gather comfortably. The close proximity to the gondola was key. We look forward to staying here again.

When we arrived in Telluride earlier than expected, Amy was very accommodating and let us come on in. We greatly appreciated the flexibility in arrival time as it had really been a long, exhausting day coming from Auburn, Alabama.

Amy also took time to show us around explaining how to operate everything from the heated floors, master steam shower, and TV’s. The Stimsons presented us with a few welcome items and the thoughtful extra’s made my visiting family welcomed indeed. We were also grateful for the supplies left in the house so we didn't have to run right out and get them (e.g., salt and pepper, Pam, toilet paper, trash bags, soap, paper towels etc.). Now, I don't know about most people, but I care about the comfort of the beds. They all were high quality Sealy Posturepedic mattresses and combine that with being away on vacation and daily hard skiing, made for a week of amazing sleep!

We’ve been renting through VRBO for years and this home was unequivocally the best location to get to the mountain or in town to eat. The layout of the home makes the logistics of donning all the ski garb much easier including the benefit of having locked ski racks outside the door.

It's always difficult to describe a memorable experience that can accurately capture the experience for anyone else, but as a frequent VRBO user I can confidently report staying here will contribute to your vacation enjoyment.

Exceptional property

  • 5 of 5

Great property for your Telluride vacation. 3 min walk to the free gondola, one block from the Stores, bars, restaurants and two blocks from the market.

The property owners and property manager provided all the amenities and information you could ask for. The property has the highest level of finishes down to the littlest detail. I highly recommend the steam shower!
